Map an item to a UPC in NetSuite

This article applies to:Connector for NetSuite

To customize taxability for some products, you need to map the items to UPCs and model numbers. Send the UPC or model number from NetSuite to AvaTax. If the UPC isn't available, the model number is set as the default and sent to AvaTax.

Before you begin

Before you map an item to a UPC, enable the UPC to be used as an item code. In NetSuite, go to Avalara > Setup > Configure Avalara. On the Tax Calculation tab, select Enable UPC Code as Item Code.


The item code or UPC is added when an item is defined. To define an item, follow these steps:

  1. In NetSuite, go to Lists > Accounting > Items.
  2. Select Edit next to the item you want to map to a UPC.
    The record for the item opens.
  3. On the Edit Item page, add the UPC for this product.
  4. Select Save.
